Vol 9 and 10
Certificate: none
Running Time: 180 mins
Retail Price: $39.95
Release Date:

Truly perfectly tailored to suit those not quite done with evolution, Monty Python`s Flying Circus provides a veritable university education in cultural literacy. Observe the Life of Tchaikovsky. Spend an afternoon with Jean-Paul Sartre. Hear a groundbreaking Theory on Brontosauruses and learn how to rid the world of all known diseases. Clearly, no programme in the history of television has brought such enlightenment to the common man -- always, of course, cleverly shrouded in a cloud of so-called "humour," in order to make education palatable to the masses. Watch and learn!

Volume 9
The BBC is short of money. Consequently, this volume contains such rubbish as The Life of Tchaikovsky, Schoolboy`s Life Assurance Company, Fraud Film Squad, one slice of strawberry tart without so much rat in it, Mrs. Premise and Mrs. Conclusion visit Jean-Paul Sarte and other perfectly normal medical phenomena.

EPISODE 29- The Money Programme
